The Alien Hornet is a Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist enemy that spawns in the area of the Vortex Pillar during the Lunar Events, summoned from opened portals in groups of two. If not killed fast enough, it will fairly quickly grow into an Alien Queen. They also grow from the Alien Larva that spawn from the death of an Alien Queen.
